            What is meant by the term communication? This is a process by which information is exchanged between individuals through a common system of symbols, signs, or behaviour. There are two kinds of communication, both depending upon the viewpoint assumed. There is outflowing communication and inflowing communication. A person who is talking to somebody else is communicating to that person (we trust), and the person who is being talked to is receiving communication from that person. Now as the conversation changes, we find the person who has been talked to is now doing the talking, and is talking to the first person, who is now receiving communication from him.
